Sunday 25 October 2020

Sam Lowes completes a lights-to-flag victory at the Teruel Grand Prix to take the lead of the Moto2 World Championship

Having topped four of this weekend’s six sessions, 30-year old Lowes got his best start of the season and led from the first corner. From there he set an incredible pace from the very first lap.

The Briton set the fastest lap of the race on lap 2 – a sensational 1’51.730 – and from there extended his lead from 1.5 seconds to a dominant 8.4 seconds at the chequered flag.

Lowes’ third win of 2020 puts him into the lead of the World Championship with 178 points. He now sits 7 points ahead of Enea Bastianini in second.

Lowes’ win is the first time a British rider has won three consecutive races in the intermediate category of grand prix racing since Phil Read did so in 1971!

“I’m really happy and really proud”

“I’m very, very happy with this result. The team did a fantastic job improving the bike from the first race in Aragon. I really enjoyed the race. It was nice to finally get a good start and lead early! The bike was working well. I said to myself that if we could have three really strong results in this triple header we can fight for the championship and that’s what has happened. I’m really happy and really proud. Thanks to the team and all the sponsors. Now we’ll look forward to fighting for the championship in the last three races.”
